CLOSED CONVERSATIONS



Choices have consequences, consequences affect circumstances, circumstances have conversations.


I love you, Jane.

I love you, John.

Our life, Jane, Im talking about our whole life ahead, its ours to mold as we will.

Hurry up, will you, its not everyday your daughter graduates.

There is no way we can afford that size of a down payment, with our limited budget.

Sorry, John, sales are slow . . . Ive got to let you go.

Oh, my brains too slow, Im too old for this . . . retraining stuff.

Mom, Dad, Ive got something to tell you.

Between womens monthly and womens menopause, Ill be a man next time.

How can we retire, with not nearly enough insurance, no real pension, and no bank savings.

Lord, were responsible for our choices, like it or not, but we dont know where to go or what to do.

My hair is going grey faster than your head is balding.

This empty nest syndrome is a nest alright, a nest strictly for the birds.

Im so tired all the time, John, and where do all these daily body aches come from.

You know, women can have a midlifes crisis, too.

Oh, Ive got my share of regrets in life, but my love for you, Jane, is not one of them.

Ever since your father died, your mother has not adjusted, you need to be there for her, more now.

Please sit up, dear . . . do you hear me . . . you need to take your pills.

I love you, Jane.

I love you, John.


In Humbridge Cemetery, of Paxton, Louisiana, USA, is the tombstone of John and Jane Michaels, and those were some of their conversations, now closed.
